Overview

The Midwest High-Speed Rails is a federal government initiative started on April 16, 2009, when President Obama announced his “Vision for High Speed Rail”. This vision includes the development of high-speed train lines in at least 10 regions across the country, including the Midwest with a major hub network centered in Chicago. To “jump start” the implementation of high-speed and intercity passenger rail, $8 billion has been included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. An additional $1 billion a year is expected to be budgeted over the next five years. The United States Senate and House of Representatives are currently considering additional federal funding for high-speed passenger rail for the 2010 transportation appropriations bill. As much as $4 billion could be available to continue development of the U.S. high-speed passenger rail system.
